Volunteering is an exciting and rewarding way to participate with Audubon. We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals or groups of people to support and enhance our programs.

Interpretive Volunteers focus on guided tours and facilitate hands-on activities with guests. Specific duties may include being able to answer questions and provide information on the flora and fauna of the area. Volunteers receive training, and may work on weekdays and weekends.

School Program Volunteers assist with facilitation of scheduled group programs for school children. School Group Programs are age-specific (K-12) and meet state education standards. The programs are typically held on weekday mornings. Volunteers for these programs complete extensive training, and this program requires dependable individuals who can make a substantial time commitment.

Special Event Volunteers can become involved in a variety of ways, from assisting staff at our Family Programs to helping with the Fall Wildlife Festival and Plant Sale. These volunteers are contacted as events are scheduled, and may need to work on evenings and weekends.

Garden volunteers are needed to keep our native gardens maintained. Tasks vary and may include weeding, mulching and planting. The work will vary seasonally, and individuals or groups are welcome.
